Children and young people can have a wide range of life limiting conditions and may sometimes live with such conditions for many years. This guideline recommends that end of life care be managed as a long term process that begins at the time of diagnosis of a life limiting condition and entails planning for the future. Sometimes it may begin before the child’s birth. It is part of the overall care of the child or young person and runs in parallel with other active treatments for the underlying condition itself. Finally, it includes those aspects related to the care of the dying.
Everyday nursing requires the appropriate use of evidence and this website from Evidently Cochrane provides useful insights. The article about pressure ulcers illustrates why evidence is needed for everyday practice.
Evidence can be found from a variety of sources and with busy workloads and winter pressures coming, you may find it is hard to find time to search for reliable evidence.
Don’t worry – we can help you!
Your Library and Knowledge Service has skilled outreach specialists who can help you, either by running an evidence search or training you to do it effectively. So get ahead and get in touch with us if you are based at East Cheshire NHS Trust.
